The Best of Walter Jackson: Welcome Home - The Okeh Years

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
This collection features 15 tracks from Walter Jackson's artistic and commercial peak 1964-1967, including his slew of R&B chart hits, highlights from LPs, and a flop single version of "My Ship Is Comin' In." On occasion, this elaborately produced commercial pop-soul reaches deeply enough into the gloss to rate as a vague precursor to the "quiet storm" music of subsequent decades.
